Into the SilverStone Precision PS05B we had installed an ECS H57H-M motherboard, an Intel Core i3 530 processor, 4GB of OCZ DDR3 system memory, a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 graphics card, an OCZ Vertex SSD, and a 500W OCZ power supply.
Installing all of this hardware into the PS05B went just fine without any problems, granted there really is not anything unique about the case that would cause any headaches during the build process.
With most SilverStone cases we review having a retail price of $200~300 USD and even their micro-ATX enclosures often going for above $100 USD, we were not sure what to expect when receiving a $50 USD mid-tower from this high-end manufacturer. While there may be nothing exceptional about this case in terms of unique features or capabilities, there is terrific value to the Precision PS05B.
The SilverStone Precision PS05B is definitely one of the most well built (if not the best) ATX enclosures we have found that has a retail price of $50 USD or less. The PS05B may not feel or look like a SilverStone Temjin or Fortress enclosure, but it definitely does not feel or look like the other ATX enclosures in this price range, and it's for the better.
For $50 USD you get a steel ATX case with five 120mm fan slots, support for four internal 2.5/3.5-inch drives, four external 5.25-inch drive bays, a number of tool-free options, and overall a modest product. If you are looking to build a very affordable system, we cannot resist recommending the SilverStone Precision PS05B at just $50 USD from retailers like NewEgg.com and Amazon.com.
